  1. Hurts wears auburn jersey

    I thought he handled this perfectly. If you can't smile at this, perhaps we take some of this a bit too seriously. I am glad he carried out his end of the bet, and I love that he did it with a good attitude and had fun with it. Other than the jersey he wears, I have nothing but respect for this kid, the way he carries himself, the way he plays the game, and the way he has handled some very difficult circumstances. He is a winner - he may not be the best QB, but he is a winner.
  2. 2018 3* ATH Nathaniel "Nate" Watson (Miss St.)

    do you even read a thread before you post? or do you just see a thread that doesn't have your name in it so you feel the need to add your complaint. I am just disappointed that you did not manage to blame Gus or Jacobs a) for not signing the kid and b.) for the kids stupid decision and new criminal record. The kid almost killed someone being stupid and it may cost him any chance to play college football. too bad we didn't sign him? pretty sure that everyone else here (while wishing the kid the best and hoping that he learns from this mistake) is very glad that AU is NOT getting the publicity from this incident. At this moment I am very glad that AU did not sign him.
  3. 2018 Recruiting thread (Updated 1/29/18)

    Let me get this strait.... you are proposing that we sign 1 LB, 1 TE, 1 DE, and 3 OT in our last 2 spots? Brilliant! now if someone can just keep the NCAA from noticing - and happen to find 3 OTs that will sign with us - I think we have a new head of football recruiting.

    41 Male Vestavia, AL I have been here for years, don't comment often - just when i feel like I have something to add. But reading and shaking my head at posts here daily.
  5. Offense in 2018

    agreed. there are clearly differences in our 2017 offense than previous years. Thus the initiative of starting this thread. I think that if you look at Lindsey, some early changes he has made, and the clear strengths of this roster moving into 2018 - that we could see something different this year unless we have a RB that really turns the coaches heads or maybe I am just trying to milk an dying thread....
  6. tenth in AP top 25

    Also, MS St ends up ranked higher if not for that nasty break of fitzgerald in the Egg Bowl. They were nowhere close to the same team without that guy taking snaps.
  7. Offense in 2018

    my initial concern as well, but these pass heavy/ hurry up OCs like to emphasize the screens, quick slants, crossing patterns, quick out routes - timing routes ... to keep pressure on the defenses and keep the chains moving - rather than the slow developing patterns that we have relied upon so much - that require 3-5 seconds of pocket protection to develop and put so much pressure on the OL. getting the ball out of the QBs hands quickly on these routes ( that Lindsey used effectively at previous locations) can partially cover up O line deficiencies and inexperience - but a pass catching TE would be a HUGE addition to our O. just curious others thoughts - since I have way too long before I see another AU snap of the football
  8. Offense in 2018

    Just up for discussion... not supporting or opposing. But.... but looking at our offensive coordinator and his history looking at our QB and his background / strengths looking at losing 95% of RB productivity over the past 2 years looking at rebuilding or re-shuffling the O-line looking at keeping 100% of our WR crew (that is very solid and improving) I know Gus is a Run first - at all cost philosophy ... but Do you think Lindsey will make a push to let him use the KNOWN tools that we have an open up this offense like Lindsey has in the past and hurry up and pass? Because I think with a RB that can block and catch - Lindsey might be licking his chops if he could build the O he wanted (of course a lot more stress on the D - because possessions can be short and run no clock) Just a thought... the tools are there (potentially) but I know it is not what Gus wants to do exactly.
  9. halftime adjustments

    very painful trying to win this without best CB, best LB and best RB.
  10. ***SECCG -- Auburn vs. Georgia -- Game Thread***

    I dont want you to forget anything. I want everyone to remember 2010-2017. We have had ups and downs. But we are playing for our 3rd SEC championship and the opportunity to play for the National Championship for the 3rd time in that span. Auburn has NEVER had that level of success before. EVER Gus has issues, but if you think you are about to do better.... with Nick across the state - This is likely the hardest head coaching job in college football. Sharing the state with the biggest dynasty in college football in the past 40 years but expected to win 11 games a year and win the SEC every other year? is that rational? No.... and no coach is going to come in and do better.... Gus has a solid system, great assistant coaches and strong recruiting in place. we should be competing toe to toe with bama for years to come. run him off now... and we start from scratch. consistency is more important that many want to acknowledge. we have a chance to really move up on many of our rivals.
  11. ***SECCG -- Auburn vs. Georgia -- Game Thread***

    here we go again.... we make stupid mistakes and they have some success. Gus is calling plays again. Is this really the only explanation we can come up with for offensive struggles? perhaps UGA came out with a good game plan? Perhaps the SEC offensive MVP is injured and our O will not look quite a crisp. perhaps anything other than this .....
  12. ***SECCG -- Auburn vs. Georgia -- Game Thread***

    just shut up.... you don't win the SEC in 2013 and be in this position now without having made major adjustments while playing in the strongest conference in the country. you have your opinions and you are entitled to them, but spouting stupid comments like this just encourage people to block you
  13. Deep South’s Oldest Rivalry No More

    So the only Power 5 conference rivalry that has played more is Wisc / Minn . That is pretty cool. those Ivy League schools don't really count.... right?
